Chamber Ambassadors 2018-19

The Ambassadors are a group of 18 local, experienced professionals who have a great deal of expertise between them. Their objective is to support the Chamber. Their primary focus is to be of assistance to Chamber members, whether new, longer term or thinking of joining. 

Our new support initiative - that we’re calling the A Team - will make it easier for members to get in touch with Ambassadors. Here are a few examples of how we might help:

-  You would like to do more networking but often feel uncomfortable or unsure at events. We can arrange to have an Ambassador greet you at the venue to help put you at your ease and even introduce you to particular attendees. 

-  You want specific advice about a business issue or objective. We can put you in touch with the Ambassador in our team who is the most qualified to help.

-  You're thinking of entering the Business Awards or want a stand at the Better Business Show. Most of the Ambassadors have experience of being part of either or both, and can provide you with the information and support you need.

Can the A Team help you? Please get in touch with the Chamber and ask for the Lead Ambassador.
